Veterans from the Second World War spent an afternoon with students from Years 10 and 11 at the Peele Community College during Remembrance Week.

The vets related their many personal experiences of war, from the Normandy beaches to Naval convoys, and the students gave short presentations of their visits to battlefield sites from both the world wars and to Auschwitz. Their stories were both frank and moving, sharing emotions and feelings through pictures, words and poetry, showing how a new generation values Remembrance.
